With respect, a simple "Add feature foo and fix bug bar" seems to me
very little extra work at all. Even for my own packages when there are a
lot of such notable changes, I include some of the most major in the
Bodhi comment, then a link to the full upstream changelog - so it would
not be terribly different from your idea alone...perhaps somewhat of a
superset (if I may use the term loosely enough).

You can create one single file for the update notice, then merely use
that in combination with the CLI bodhi-client utility. See
https://fedorahosted.org/bodhi/wiki/CLI for more details. Copy/paste
with some minor editing (for the branch and dist tag) doesn't seem
terribly difficult. =P
